this race. christie is simply too popular, thanks in part to his definite handling of hurricane sandy last year. democrats could have prevented christie from the sort of massive victory that he could use as a springboard for a 2016 presidential run. christie's campaign has not even tried to disguise that they want to run up the margins in this race so they can tell every republican who will listen that the state who re-elected barack obama by 17 points turned around the next year and backed chris christie by an even bigger margin. democrats could have denied him that. they could have worked to keep buono close, to keep christie from gaining momentum, from a massive victory in a blue state. instead, christie has built a 33-point lead without putting up any real fight on the democratic side. and that could come back to haunt them once 2016 rolls around. joining me now is e.j. dionne, a "washington post" columnist and author of "our divided political heart: the battle for the american idea in an age of discontent." e.j., thanks for joining us tonight. i appreciate it. and i'm just sort of thi

hurricane sandy, something like $65 billion in damages to the country. rick, isn't this the dynamic in the republican party right now? one side wants to govern, the other side wants to stand on issues? >> i think it's a bit of both. one of the problemsivity with chris christie is his recent speech with the rnc where he says all i care about is winning. we've seen that before. okay, if we win, we get what? i would say, he did what he had to do with the storm. i do think, though, there was a bit of december probably a little too cozy with the president, knowing it was the final daze of mitt romney, with what mark halperin wrote in his book. that might have been a thumb in the eye. i'm not sure. that might have been a style he needs to address. >> he absolutely has that style. >> in 1900, in all three levels of government, government took less than 10% of the american people's money. now we're talking 35% and add a dollar value to mandate, we're talking almost 50%, where is the outrage on the part of the republican party? >> the outrage is there, but if we look at where the republican
, ellis island is set to reopen a year after being submerged by super storm sandy. >> now more from ellis island, big doings there today, stacy. >> reporter: yeah, big day here today. 9:30, the first boat will arrive with visitors. for more than a year, when sandy came through almost one year to the date, it completely flooded ellis island. eight feet of water washed through the main hall here, it destroyed the electrical system. it destroyed the boilers. so things have been pretty out of commission. but finally they are able to open it to the public today. it is not all the way there. there is still a lot of work to be done because workers here, before this storm, had taken all of the artifacts, a lot of photographs and moved it to higher ground. right after the storm, when everything was flooded, they removed it all to storage warehouses. that stuff has not been brought back because right now, ellis island is still running on interim power and heat. so still about six to eight months out from ellis island being totally back to normal. back to you. >> stacy, live. how can does it take to
its first visitors since it was damaged by hurricane sandy last year. hello, i'm wolf blitzer reporting today from washington. we start with the fallout over the latest revelations about spying at the nsa and tapping of world leaders' phones. the big question people are asking now is, what did the president know and when did he know it. i'm joined by chief national security kurt correspondent jim sciutto who has been covering the story. crux of the controversy is what. >> well, the crux right now is what did the preds know and when. there's some conflicting information out there. a german newspaper reporting he knew in detailed form in 2010 about this spying going up to and including angela merkel's cell phone. this is something the white house and nsa deny. "wall street journal" reports the president was only made aware of this last summer. conflicting at this point. neither answers is satisfying because either he didn't have enough oversight or he hasn't been entirely forthcoming. demands for more information. some of these things are so sensitive, he can't go into full deta
. >> since you're at the one-year anniversary of hurricane sandy, i'm thinking about my friends of new york a lot the past couple days. >> thank you, sir. >> i sat through the three-and-a-half hour hearing with secretary sebelius today. i sat through the four and a half hour hearing with the contractors a week ago. you know, the thing that just top of mind, why didn't anybody talk to the president when he kept repeating over and over again if you like your doctor, if you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan. it was obvious that was not the case. >> you heard the president speaking earlier today. >> no, i didn't. chairman rangel was not sharing the television monitor with me. >> oh, i'm so sorry. he ought to be more friendly. he is generally a friendly chap, actually. i can tell you the president explained very carefully that those policies were actually shot with all kinds of problems. and therefore, he -- you know, that's why this system that is replaced is so much better. i'm afraid we only have a few seconds left. >> but martin, you know, i'm getting calls and letters fro
